Whistle BMW Navigation System Linked To Google Maps



In Europe for now, but will come to US as well.

http://vodcast.bmw.com/stories/3316214/

BMW has reached an agreement with Google to link the premium car maker's navigation system with Google Maps for faster and more comfortable route planning.
The new service, provided initially only in Germany as part of the BMW Assist navigation system, enables motorists to transfer address and telephone number data found on Google Maps directly onto the vehicle.
Users need only click onto the Internet site http://maps.google.de to search for a local company or service operator. The data is then stored in the "My Info" function of the BMW Assist Menu.
At the press of a button the address is then programmed into the destination of the navigation system. Alternatively the displayed telephone number could be dialled via the car cell phone, BMW said in a press statement.
According to BMW, the advantage of the new system is that addresses no longer need to be printed out or written down on a note pad. The manual programming of the navigation system is no longer necessary as the data can be called up from the "My Info" menu.
Any address can be sought via the search function of Google Maps in Germany. But BMW said it was planning to extend the service to other countries at a later stage.
